Here is the recipe you have all been dying to get your hands on. This drink is from 66 in TriBeCa NYC, and passed on to me by my dear friend Michael:
1/2 Cup Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Chopped Peeled Fresh Ginger
1 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Lemon Grass
Bring lime juice, sugar, ginger, and lemon grass to a boil in small saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Strain syrup and discard solids. Chill.
3/4 Cup Tequila (white is best for the drink color if serving in a clear glass, otherwise any tequila)
3/4 Cup Cointreau
Mix chilled syrup, tequila, cointreau in cocktail shaker with ice.
Run lime wedge around margarita glass, dip in salt, strain drink into glass, garnish with lime wedge.
According to Michael: "I always at least double or triple this recipe and make it in a pitcher. It says 4 servings, but for us it is more like 2 really good ones. Lemon grass is sometimes available at the supermarket, sometimes at Whole Foods but is always available at Asian Markets. Don't leave it out, the drink won't be the same."
